You may have heard it said that breastfeeding is good for babies up to three months and this saying is actually very true as we are going to see why in a few minutes. You may be a mother who does not breastfeed your baby because you think that it is better for you baby to drink other kinds of milk. Many mothers do not really like the idea of breastfeeding their baby but we will tell you right now that if you do not breastfeed your baby, they will be lacking a lot of wonderful benefits that you can give to them if you breastfeed them. Breastfeeding your baby is something that you should really do because this can really help your child in a lot of ways. Let us now look at some wonderful benefits that you can give to your baby if you breastfeed them so without further due, let us begin.
A mothers milk has a lot of antibodies in it so if you breastfeed your baby, they can get all these antibodies from you to really protect them. Did you ever see a sick new born baby? Do you wonder why new born babies do not really have fever or cough or a cold? This is because of the antibodies in their mothers milk. Your new born baby can really get to fight off the bacteria and the viruses around so breastfeeding is really good for your baby especially in this early stage. A new born baby that does not live on breastfeeding is a really sorry child and if you really want your baby to be safe and protected for the first few months, you should definitely breastfeed your baby so that they will really benefit from the antibodies in the milk that you provide them with. This is why you should always breastfeed your baby.
A mothers milk does not only contain antibodies but it also has all the necessary nutrients in order for you child to grow and to become stronger. There are so many formulas that are out in the market today promising to give your child a really healthy and strong live but you should not really listen to these advertisements because breastfeeding is the best thing that you can do for your baby. The milk that you can provide for your child is all that they need for up to 3-6 months. It is not a really good idea to feed other types of formulas when you child is still new born because then you can be taking away the nutrients and the antibodies that you as a mother can provide them with. If you take breastfeeding away from your baby, you are robbing them of all the nutrients that they need for growing. You should really never take away breastfeeding from your little boy or from your little girl because this can really ruin their health and their immune system.
